1.5 year old Lab mix

Meet Duke! He is a 1.5 year old Lab mix weighing around 67lbs. He loves other dogs and would do well with kids (cats unknown but we can test). Duke does have heartworms which we are treating him for (shelter covers expense). Duke would make a great companion to any house, stop by our shelter to meet him!


4 year old female kitty
Summer is a precious 4 year old female kitty that is looking for a home to call her own. Summer is front declawed. She seems to get along well with other cats and would be fine with kids (dogs unknown). Summer loves attention and is very affectionate. Stop by our shelter to meet Summer!


3 year old female

Meet Lovey! She’s exactly like her name suggests. She is a 3 year old female kitty who is super sweet and she loves attention. She is more than likely blind in her right eye, but that doesn’t slow her down! She enjoys sleeping in a soft cat bed and will stay in there for hours! Lovey is a low-maintenance girl as long as she has a bed of her own. She is ready to find her furever home, will that be with you?

Here are a couple of adorable pups from A Forever Home Animal Rescue at 2950 CR 561 in Tavares.

For more information, visit www.aforeverhomeanimalrescue.org or call (407) 221-1855. 


1.5-year-old Bully mix

Jesse is a 1.5-year-old Bully mix weighing 66 pounds. She was adopted a year ago and returned when the adopter relocated and was unable to take her. We were told that she doesn’t like men and that she became protective of the family. She can be timid when she first meets you. She is a fun, sweet girl. She loves to walk on the leash, she absolutely loves to run and play in the yard.  She needs an adopter who will take the time to rebuild her trust. Her adoption donation is $100 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip. She is heartworm negative and on monthly prevention. She has so much potential if someone will just take the time with her so please give her a chance.


2-year-old female Jack Russell

Brynlee is a 2-year-old female Jack Russell mix weighing approximately 13 pounds. She was confiscated by animal services and was so fearful that you could not even touch her. She was very timid but now she is friendly and always wagging her tail. She is so mellow and quiet. We have never heard her bark. She will not walk on a leash and she is not house trained yet, but we are working on it. She gets along well with the other dogs but no cats or children please. Her adoption donation is $200 which includes her spay, vaccinations and microchip. We can only imagine what her past life was but she will blossom into a lovable, loyal companion if you will just give her a chance.  


5-year-old Dachshund mix

Tilley is a 5-year-old Dachshund mix weighing 15 pounds. When she first arrived, she was so scared that she would hide and cower whenever anyone went near her. She cannot be left alone outdoors no matter how secure you think the fence is. She will not walk on a leash so she does need to have a home with a fenced-in yard. She gets along with most dogs and has not been cat or child tested. Her adoption donation is $250 which includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip. She is heartworm negative and on monthly prevention.

Coco and Flocko

14-year-old Poodle mix

Coco and Flocko are bonded 14-year-old Poodle mix brothers.They were brought to animal services when their owner passed away and there was no one to care for them. They have not been neutered and have a vet appointment to determine if they are healthy enough. They are super mellow and easy to care for.
